Skype is too cool for school, except it's not and you should totally use it Kasie Payne

Why haven't you just freaking done it yet?

I don't want to give up my power and control

But you must. now. this year. for real this time.

Students are lost

Students are alone

How cruel. We send students into this little microcosm of society and force them to develop their most basic beliefs about themselves, their ability to love and be loved, their comfort with who they are in relation to others—and force them to do this with others who also have no idea what they're doing. Plus, we group them by nothing, nothing except age and location. No wonder why they group themselves by only what they can—wealth, looks, clubs.

Technology cannot fix anything. it is not the answer.

Perennials--Gina Pell

relevant people of all ages who live in the present time, know what’s happening in the world, stay current with technology, and have friends of all ages. 'We get involved, stay curious, mentor others, are passionate, compassionate, creative, confident, collaborative, global-minded, risk takers who continue to push up against our growing edge and know how to hustle. We comprise an inclusive, enduring mindset, not a divisive demographic.

Benefit Professionals

What talented people want has changed. They used to want high salaries to verify their value and stable career paths to allow them to sleep well at night. Now they want purposeful work and jobs that fit clearly into the larger context of their career. And that means they want jobs that are sensible parts of an ongoing journey through a series of professional endeavors — not some supposedly linear path toward “success”.

Studies show that engaged employees are 50% more productive and 33% more profitable. They are also responsible for 56% higher customer loyalty scores and correlated with 44% higher retention rates, leading to great gains in productivity over the long run.
